The Pediatric Medical Device Safety and Improvement Act of 2007 (S. 830)
On March 8, 2007, Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT) introduced S. 830, the Pediatric Medical Device Safety and Improvement Act of 2007. A House companion, H.R. 1494, was introduced by Representative Edward Markey (D-MA) on March 13, 2007. The bills are aimed at encouraging the development of medical devices for use by children. Provisions would require NIH, FDA, and AHRQ to develop a plan for expanding medical device research and development. Provisions would also require the Secretary, HHS, to provide grants to a non-profit consortium, which would be tasked with facilitating the development of pediatric devices, by connecting individuals with ideas for pediatric devices with potential manufacturers. The consortium would be required to coordinate with NIH in these efforts and would be responsible for notifying NIH of any unmet needs that the consortium lacks sufficient capacity to address. S. 830 was referred to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP).
